I have used gprof/gmon for sometime to profile the c++ code for
runtime. I find it helpful for good tuning, specially for the kind of
compiler I write (electronics design automation), where the inputs
(digital circuit designs) are easily categorized.

I wonder if there are other good open-source runtime profilers for C+
+. My minimal knowledge indicates either gprof and to some extent
cachegrind (little different). What other tools are out there? Is
gprof the best out there for free profilers? Please, open-source and
free tools are important keywords in my message.

Thanks for your comments.
